Subject: Why am I JUST seeing this?
Oh my, I'm still laughing!
"I HAD A TEA PARTY!! DID ANYONE ELSE HAVE A TEA PARTY???"
Once I saw this, I had to pass the link to some friends who also were in need of a good laugh.
THANK YOU for uploading this!
hahah good stuff! very enjoyable.
Subject: So right on, but one thing
I love it. Just heard about the video via a link from the planning e-newsletter Planetizen and I gotta say, you've got it just about right. But lets not forget, while I type this review in the shadow of Jefferson's Rotunda, that Charlottesville has been rated the "Best Place to Live" by many obscure and somewhat-noteworthy publications. Just please don't tell the aliens about Monticello. ;)
Subject: INSTANT CLASSIC!!
I love the ending.
Creative syle kept me interested
Subject: right on the button!
wow. hilarious take on the national cities. great humor and wonderful animation style. great job all around.
Subject: You have to know the stereotypes
As a Non-North American I couldn't quite get all of the stereotypes presented in the picture. Only some of the cities gave me a clue about specific peculiarities attributed to its citizens.
Being thus that ignorant, I could lean back and concentrate on the overall artistic quality of the movie. Although I can't refrain from admitting that some parts are quite funny, there is a bit too much shouting involved... The "characters" are childish and as though a part of a loud tv show of minor quality.
The amination is acceptable.
The conclusion OK.

If only this film as a little bit longer -- say an hour or so. :-) I found myself chuckling all the way through it. The stereotypes are perfect. The voices of the cities are great. The animation is flawless. There is very little -- if anything -- to dislike about this picture.
This movie gets the stereotypes down just right. They could have easily made it a bit longer by adding a couple more cities like Baltimore, Chicago or Seattle and their distinctive traits.

Humorus view of the stereotypes spoken by the cities where they are thought to exist.
